I never met Mr. Thomas but always felt blessed to know his son, Joe. How wonderful to have a son, and daughter, that give back to the community and help others as he did so well.
Julie, Joe, Jr. and Family
I am so sorry for your loss. Joe was a great gentleman, Hokie, and friend. It was a true privilege having known him. We met through our football adventures with John Rocovich. Joe treated me like a son giving sound advice and encouragement. Through "Big Joe" I had the opportunity to get to know Joe, Jr. a fine young businessman and friend. We can take joy knowing that when we get to Heaven we will have a friend there to great us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Mr. Thomas was Chairman of the Board for First Virginia Bank Southwest for many years. He is remembered fondly as a true Virginia Gentleman. I always remember him having a huge smile and such an outgoing personality. I always looked forward to seeing him when he came into the bank. He will be missed not only by his family but his community and all those he touched by the example of the life he lived.
Prayers are with the family of Joe's. What a lost to all that knew and loved him. Such a kind and caring man . May he Rest in Peace!!
Love to all!
